For many growers, it will soon be that time again: the crop rotation. A new crop should start as optimally as possible, so good preparation and execution are of great importance. If the crop rotation is not carried out correctly, there is a good chance that pests and diseases will enter the crop, and of course, this is something you want to prevent. This blog by Steenks Service describes which machines can be used to effectively carry out crop rotation.
During the crop rotation, hard work is done in the shortest possible time to remove the old plants, clean the greenhouse completely and prepare it for the new crop. The aim is to finish the cultivation clean so that the new cultivation can then be started again clean.
Transport in the greenhouse
In addition to the crop itself, old rock wool cultivation mats also need to be taken out of the greenhouse. Our MultiCart transport trolley offers the solution for this. Of course, this transport trolley can also be used to place the new rock wool cultivation mats in the greenhouse. In addition to driving rock wool mats in and out of the greenhouse, the MultiCart transport trolley is also suitable for transporting young plants on Danish trolleys.
Cleaning the greenhouse
Has everything been removed from the greenhouse? Then it is time for a major scrubbing of the concrete paths. The scrubbing machines from our range will help you with this. Do you have to clean a large surface? The Stefix 1000 scrubbing machine has a cleaning capacity of no less than 5,500 m2 per hour, so your concrete floors will be clean in no time.
Cleaning the greenhouse and the machines themselves is also an important step during crop rotation. Even the smallest crop residues can contain viruses and diseases. Our spray cart on air wheels and greenhouse roof cleaners, among others, offer you a helping hand.
Rent horticultural machines during your crop rotation
In addition to buying horticultural machines, Steenks Service also offers the possibility to rent various machines, including floor scrubbers and electric tow tractors. You can also contact us for the rental of pipe rail trolleys. These trolleys are often used during the crop rotation to hang AC foil in the new crop, and for covering and cleaning lamps in the greenhouse. Renting one or more machines can offer the solution when you only need the machine during the crop rotation. This prevents high purchase costs and you also do not have to worry about maintenance on the machine. We deliver the rented machine to you fully operational so that you can get started right away,
